How are they able to get a picture of Saturn with the sun on the other side? At no point in our orbit EVER has there been a point where Saturn is between us and the sun. And I know we haven't sent anything out that far....have we?

Voyager

I don't remember which year, but that was a picture taken by Voyager a couple decades ago. I BELIEVE it's the only space craft to ever leave the solar system.

I've seen all of these except Jupiter's North Pole, and Saturn and Uranus in infrared light, which was interesting as ****.
My only complaint with posts like these is a matter of quality. I collect pictures like this. This is like a fat person being forced to stare at the window of a really awesome candy store, and being told that they can't have it.

Now I feel compelled to search each of these individually and finding the images I want. o_e
Here, have a picture of the Eskimo Nebula. I have more if anyone wants me to post them.

This one's probably edited, but it's similar. I have similar pictures from the ISS.
To save you a lot of trouble, this is where I get most of my pics:

Though it sometimes takes a long time to load.

And just image, a few hundred years ago we couldn't decide if the earth was flat or not. Imagine what we'll know in another hundred years.

i really wanna know whats on the inside of the gas giants (yes i know what everyone is about to say. "its gas") but i remember hearing that we dont know much about the gas giants and that its possible that the gas giants just have so much gas in their atmosphere we cant see inside. imagine sending a drone in there...same with a black hole. i wanna see inside the event horizon
